As equestrians, when we think of strides, we tend to think of counting them to figure out the best distance between jumps and knowing your horses’ stride can be a big advantage in the show ring. So how does that translate into a useful equestrian app? The Tech Equestrian caught up with mystride recently to understand what makes them stand out in the category of Ride Tracking & Community apps.
2018 was full of new horse tech products and The Tech Equestrian was right there giving you first-hand information on the features, capabilities and advantages of each. As we experience the disruption of technology in our own consumer lives, the horse world is slowly waking up to the realities and possibilities technology can provide. For this year’s top ten blog posts - we looked at the highest page views to our site from each post to compile the top ten. From horse transportation to horse safety and performance wearables - these were some of the areas that interested you the most. If you haven’t had a chance to read, now is a great time to do so - a New Year is upon us and you don’t want to be left behind! Keep connected!
“I came up with the idea for Tagalo two years ago after falling a number of times and realizing that when you are on the ground and injured that time matters,” said Co-Founder, Ann De Mot from Belgium in an interview with The Tech Equestrian at the Longines® Masters New York event last month.
HorseNotes mirrors that experience when you download the app, delivering an easy interface with the main categories covering your horses, a calendar, journal, expenses and contacts. Once you start exploring, the Horse Health page allows you to find and manage all of the key maintenance records with prescriptive visual icons and also integrates picture downloads for storing receipts and more on your smart phone.
One of the highlights of 2017 was the birth of not only a really cool iPhone app for equestrians, but the start of a successful equestrian community. This community tapped into the online world of young riders and the success of custom horse profiles and avatars. The PonyApp Instagram page has close to 30,000 followers.
